    I just don’t know what I would *do* with a cake topper after the fact; I would feel bad tossing it, but I don’t want to store the thing for the rest of our lives.

    I love cakes decorated with fresh flowers, or sugar flowers.  That’s probably what we’ll end up doing.

    I found ours on Etsy. The woman who made our cake (which was a gift and totally free) made the base, because she didn’t feel comfortable putting it directly on the cake, and since it was a gift I didn’t think it was appropriate to argue. The flowers are silk.

    Here’s a picture of a friend’s cake.  This completely fit their theme.  One of the most fun weddings I’ve ever been to.

    @Anise: if you want something that will be functional after the wedding, have you thought about using salt & pepper shakers? there are some really cute ones out there. that’s what we almost used before we found the one we decided on.

    this was our cake topper. we got so many compliments on it (excpet for my flower girl. she thought it was scary and wanted to know why we had skeletons on our cake, lol)! i collect calaveras/dia de los muertos items, so we use it as decoration in our home. i love it 🙂

    @lilchicana:  Thanks for the suggestion!  We already have a couple sets of nice salt & pepper shakers.  I really think the only thing we are going to take away from our wedding “stuff” is the cake knife & server (we’ll have them engraved), and maybe a set of nice champagne flutes (not engraved).

    At this point I really doubt anyone is going to change our minds about just using flowers or sugar flowers for decoration.  The cake will still be beautiful for photos!  I guess I’d rather spend that $75 (estimating here) on flowers than on a nice-looking cake topper.  I’ve seen lots of cute ones, but they’re just not for me.

    I think cake toppers can be more personal, although flowers on a cake looks really beautiful.  In the end, for me, it came down to cost; a cake topper was way cheaper to make than adding flowers.  Mine cost me around $15 to make.

    @KimmySumShuga:  Thanks! We are planning on using it as a decoration on our bookshelf after the wedding.

    It’s a shame that your cake collapsed, but at least you a got a free cake.

    We did a bow on top. It kind of made my cake look like a present. 🙂

    I put  the bow on our Christmas tree afterward.

    Ours was a custom one from Etsy. Darling Husband wanted to be wearing his chef ‘whites’, and you can’t see it, but ‘my’ hand is actually on his butt (I’m sad the photographer didn’t get a picture of it). It’s very ‘us’, indeed.
